Will of William T. Pippy
In re WILLIAM T. PIPPY. DECEASED.
This is the last will and testament of me William T. Pippy of Saint John's in the County of Newfoundland. I hereby revoke all wills and testamentary instruments heretofore by me made. I appoint C.H. Butt of St. John's Nfld. Accountant to be the Executor of this my will. I direct my Executor to pay my just debts and funeral and testamentary expenses. I give and bequeath to my wife Eliza my Dwelling House No. 3 Colonial Street for her life, after her death the House to be sold and the proceeds after deducting expenses to be divided equally amongst my four children Joseph, Reuben, Maud and Dorcas. I give to my wife Eliza all my furniture and other household effects, contained in Dwelling House No. 3 Colonial Street, and all monies eighter in cash or on deposit in the Bank of Nova Scotia. If necessary for her support she can sell the House, but if any monies left out of the proceeds at her death such amount to be divided amongst my four children as named above.
(Listed in the Margin next to this will the following)
|Note: The wills in those will books are NOT actual wills. They are hand-written copies of a, "last will and testament," written by the court clerk, after the death of the testator, when the executor presented them to the court for probate. The court clerk didn't list the signatures at the bottom, he (or she) just put them in the book in whatever order they were in, on the original document, no spacing most of the time, no punctuation. The originals were kept by the executor. |
We who have typed these wills, have made every effort to include all the errors that were on the microfilm, in order to avoid destroying the integrity of the originals, where ever they may be.
